Children's Photography in Denver, Highlands Ranch, Parker & Castle Rock

FINALLY!!! After 7 straight weekends of rain and cold in Colorado, we finally had a beautiful Colorado blue sky day!! This morning I spent about an hour with Kylie, who is two and a half years old. So cute with those little piggy tails! After having to reschedule 3 times due to rain, we were a little bummed out when we showed up at the park and the "lawn crew" was there in their bright orange vests!! But in the end, it all worked out just fine, we were able to easily work around their trucks and lawn equipment, who doesn't like a little challenge here and there!

Well, I have to run... today we are setting up the pool in the backyard and my assistance is needed! Hope you all enjoy the sunshine!! Cija

Milestone Baby Packages Available in Castle Rock, Parker, Highlands Ranch & the Denver Metro Area

First of all, let me say "BRRRRR" it's freezing! All this cold wet weather at the end of May?? Oh well... when it does stop raining it sure is going to be green with color and that makes for a mighty fine picture! Hope you all had a great Memorial Day week end, ours was pretty uneventful but we did manage to squeeze in a few roasted marshmellows last night (and yes, we did get rained on doing it)! I told the girls "now you can say you have been camping this year, we roasted marshmellows and sat in the rain, now let's go inside and put on our jammies!" Well enough about that!!

Today I wanted to show you a couple of pictures from a recent "Milestone Package", this little boy had his 1st session at 3 months and will return at 6 months, 9 months and 1 year. The full package ranges from $240 - $280 (depending on location) and includes 8 images from each of the 4 sessions for a total of 32 images! It's a great way to help you document the first year of life. (Note: Siblings can be added to a few of the shots for an additional fee) See my website for more details.

Well, I am off to find a sweatshirt and turn the heat back on!!! Till next time...

Family Photography at Daniel's Gate near Castle Pine's Colorado

So are you impressed that I figured out how to add music to my Blog!?!
Anyway... this past Sunday I had the pleasure of doing family portraits at the beautiful Daniel's Gate Park, WOW!! You can't help but notice the beauty of God's creation from that vantage point! While the landscape is stunning to say the least, the location can require a bit of patience as we wait for the lighting to cooperate, but it is certainly worth the wait. Keep in mind if you are thinking about using this location for your next photo session you will need to schedule your session time for just before sunset.
Well I am off... hope you enjoy the pictures! Cija

Infant Photography Serving the Denver Metro Area

So, as some of you know outdoor natural light photography is my first love, being outdoors, capturing those candid moments; but that doesn't always work for my more "delicate" clients! If you have a baby (12 months and under) I am happy to work with you by providing a more temperature controlled climate in the comfort of my family room! But don't except to find a fancy shamcy studio with big lights and multiple backdrops, I still love that natural light so we will get up close and personal with the windows on the west side of my house! Another option I offer is "in home" session, in your home that is, but more on that another time!!
This little guy is Ryder. Wow!! can this little one sleep! So precious, I love the look of a sleeping newborn, it's just so peaceful. If you are planning a newborn shoot of your own, here a few tips.
- Don't over book your day, give yourself (and me) plenty of time to work through any baby "moods". Sessions can be as quick as 30 minutes or as long as several hours if your little one is fussy, either way I don't mind! The point is to capture precious memories even if it takes us a while!
- Consider making the session special time for just mommy(daddy) and baby by making other arrangements for siblings. Of course siblings are always welcome, in fact bring a couple of the neighbor kids if you want too, it' just that sometimes brothers and sisters can become a little restless waiting for baby to fall asleep or wake up (whatever the case may be) and that can tend to raise mommy's stress level!
- Bring along your favorite blankets or things that will help your baby feel safe and secure.
- most importantly... relax. If you are relaxed your baby will be relaxed too!
Check out my website for package options! We can do an individual newborn session or you can sign up for Milestone sessions at 3, 6, 9 & 12 months. for more information.
